The Flemington-Raritan Education Foundation invites you to honor a teacher or staff member AND strengthen our schools with a gift to the Flemington-Raritan Education Foundation (FREF). With a minimum donation of $5 per honoree, FREF will send a personalized thank you to the teacher. Your contributions will be used toward grants for FRSD schools. Your gift to FREF will convey two important messages: * You value and honor a teacher’s skills and dedication * You wish to strengthen our schools with grants to support FRSD education initiatives.
